SOURCE Search Seach Query Examples

Help: Query Results



SOURCE contains two types of pages, Gene Reports and CloneReports.

  • GeneReports display information about genes including functional, structural and expression data. GeneReports give an overview of a gene's biology by describing its protein function, the tissue sources of cDNA clones associated with the gene, links to microarray experiments that included the queried gene, and the mapping of the gene within the human genome.
  • CloneReports display information about a given cDNA clone (also known as an Expressed Sequence Tag or EST) including putative ID, the size of the insert, vector information, and links to BLAST searches and genome browsing tools. Users can switch between the two types of reports by clicking on the button at the top of each report page.

    Gene Information Results

    The gene information results of a SOURCE Query are arranged in a table. The general format for a well characterized clone is as follows.

    cDNA Information Results

    The cDNA information results of a SOURCE Query are arranged in a table. The contents of this table are obtained from NCBI's database of "Expressed Sequence Tags" (dbEST).

    Exceptions to the Results Formats detailed above

    Because of the varying levels of EST, gene, and protein characterization, as well as the nature of the various databases that SOURCE is compiled from, results may differ from the formats described above. Although all query results should contain UniGene cluster info, queries of CloneIDs from poorly characterized genes may return Gene information results lacking additional data in the title header (gene common name, GeneCard, and OMIM links), and the Swiss-Prot and GeneMap99 sections (or both) may be absent. Queries for CloneIDs that begin with HBC or ATCC will not have any cDNA information.
